For the first time since entrapped for five years, held hostage by US [and Israel]-supported terrorists in East Ghouta, thousands of Syrian civilians safely left the enclave though Russia’s humanitarian corridor – from newly liberated areas.

According to Russian General Vladimir Zolotukhin, “withdrawal of civilians from the settlements of Hamuria, Sakba and Khazze south of the city of Douma is being carried out along the humanitarian corridor opened on March 15.”

“At present, more than 4,000 people have been withdrawn from Hamuria. The withdrawal of civilians continues. By the end of the day, at least 13,000 people are expected to leave.”

Better Keep Track Of Your Favorite Sites, Search Engines To Be Censored By EU's Dictators Reader 03/15/2018 (Thu) 10:43:45 Id: 591036 [Preview] No. 7291 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Roughly nine months after Google's parent company Alphabet was slapped with a 2.4 billion euro fine for "abusing its dominance in search," Brussels bureaucrats are reportedly preparing to take things a step further and unleash Europe-wide regulations for search engines and other online platforms and apps. According to the Financial Times, which broke the story, the regulations are meant to protect companies that rely on Google, Apple or Amazon to sell their services or products.

European policymakers have been exploring ways to target "harmful" trade practices as many small firms in the region have complained that tech behemoths like Google have skewed search results to favor its own services over the services of its competitors. The issue has so far been left for members states to deal with. Of the largest European states, France has distinguished itself as among the most aggressive in trying to push back against the US-domiciled tech giants and their allegedly anti-competitive tendencies.

The regulations are also notable in that they represent the most stringent rules governing search engines' behavior by a developed Western power.

Case in point: Earlier today, the French government warned that it could take legal action against Google and Apple over their "abusive" business practices.

"I believe in an economy based on justice and I will take Google and Apple before the Paris Commercial Court for abusive business practices" against French start-ups, said French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire on a local radio program.

"I consider that Google and Apple, as powerful as they are, shouldn't treat our start-ups and our developers in the way they do today," said Le Maire, calling the situation "unacceptable".

The news didn't have much of an impact on shares of Google, Apple or their megacap-tech brethren.

The EU’s strike against what it refers to as "online intermediation services" was delayed in December so it could be tweaked to cover search engines, according to the FT, which obtained a draft of the regulations.

"Online intermediation services can hold superior bargaining power over their business users, enabling them to behave unilaterally in a way that is capable of harming the businesses using them," the draft says, adding that search engine rankings are also potentially unfair and capable of causing economically significant harm."

Bombshell Book About To Come Out Exposing Treason By US Politicians To Sell Out America's Power, Wealth To China Reader 03/15/2018 (Thu) 13:50:54 Id: b9c5fc [Preview] No. 7299 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
On Thursday, the New York Post published an exclusive excerpt of the soon-to-be-released investigative blockbuster Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends by Government Accountability Institute President and Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer.

In this excerpt, Schweizer reveals that former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden and the stepson of former Secretary of State John Kerry scored a $1 billion deal with the Bank of China’s Bohai Capital just 10 days after Vice President Biden and his son Hunter Biden returned from their 2013 trip to China.


From the New York Post:

Joe Biden and John Kerry have been pillars of the Washington establishment for more than 30 years. Biden is one of the most popular politicians in our nation’s capital.

His demeanor, sense of humor, and even his friendly gaffes have allowed him to form close relationships with both Democrats and Republicans. His public image is built around his “Lunch Bucket Joe” persona. As he reminds the American people on regular occasion, he has little wealth to show for his career, despite having reached the vice presidency.

One of his closest political allies in Washington is former senator and former Secretary of State John Kerry. “Lunch Bucket Joe” he ain’t; Kerry is more patrician than earthy. But the two men became close while serving for several decades together in the US Senate. The two “often talked on matters of foreign policy,” says Jules Witcover in his Biden biography.

So their sons going into business together in June 2009 was not exactly a bolt out of the blue.

Nowhere is that more true than in their commercial dealings with Chinese government-backed enterprises.

Rosemont Seneca joined forces in doing business in China with another politically connected consultancy called the Thornton Group. The Massachusetts-based firm is headed by James Bulger, the nephew of the notorious mob hitman James “Whitey” Bulger. Whitey was the leader of the Winter Hill Gang, part of the South Boston mafia. Under indictment for 19 murders, he disappeared. He was later arrested, tried, and convicted.

James Bulger’s father, Whitey’s younger brother, Billy Bulger, serves on the board of directors of the Thornton Group. He was the longtime leader of the Massachusetts state Senate and, with their long overlap by state and by party, a political ally of Massachusetts Senator John Kerry.

Less than a year after opening Rosemont Seneca’s doors, Hunter Biden and Devon Archer were in China, having secured access at the highest levels. Thornton Group’s account of the meeting on their Chinese-language website was telling: Chinese executives “extended their warm welcome” to the “Thornton Group, with its US partner Rosemont Seneca chairman Hunter Biden (second son of the now Vice President Joe Biden).”

The purpose of the meetings was to “explore the possibility of commercial cooperation and opportunity.” Curiously, details about the meeting do not appear on their English-language website.

Also, according to the Thornton Group, the three Americans met with the largest and most powerful government fund leaders in China — even though Rosemont was both new and small.

The timing of this meeting was also curious. It occurred just hours before Hunter Biden’s father, the vice president, met with Chinese President Hu in Washington as part of the Nuclear Security Summit.

There was a second known meeting with many of the same Chinese financial titans in Taiwan in May 2011. For a small firm like Rosemont Seneca with no track record, it was an impressive level of access to China’s largest financial players. And it was just two weeks after Joe Biden had opened up the US-China strategic dialogue with Chinese officials in Washington.

Hunter and Finnegan Biden joined the vice president for tea with US Ambassador Gary Locke at the Liu Xian Guan Teahouse in the Dongcheng District in Beijing. Where Hunter Biden spent the rest of his time on the trip remains largely a mystery. There are actually more reports of his daughter Finnegan’s activities than his.

What was not reported was the deal that Hunter was securing. Rosemont Seneca Partners had been negotiating an exclusive deal with Chinese officials, which they signed approximately 10 days after Hunter visited China with his father. The most powerful financial institution in China, the government’s Bank of China, was setting up a joint venture with Rosemont Seneca.

The Bank of China is an enormously powerful financial institution. But the Bank of China is very different from the Bank of America. The Bank of China is government-owned, which means that its role as a bank blurs into its role as a tool of the government. The Bank of China provides capital for “China’s economic statecraft,” as scholar James Reilly puts it. Bank loans and deals often occur within the context of a government goal.

Rosemont Seneca and the Bank of China created a $1 billion investment fund called Bohai Harvest RST (BHR), a name that reflected who was involved. Bohai (or Bo Hai), the innermost gulf of the Yellow Sea, was a reference to the Chinese stake in the company. The “RS” referred to Rosemont Seneca. The “T” was Thornton.

The fund enjoyed an unusual and special status in China. BHR touted its “unique Sino-US shareholding structure” and “the global resources and network” that allowed it to secure investment “opportunities.” Funds were backed by the Chinese government.

In short, the Chinese government was literally funding a business that it co-owned along with the sons of two of America’s most powerful decision makers.

The partnership between American princelings and the Chinese government was just a beginning. The actual investment deals that this partnership made were even more problematic. Many of them would have serious national security implications for the United States.

In 2015, BHR joined forces with the automotive subsidiary of the Chinese state-owned military aviation contractor Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC) to buy American “dual-use” parts manufacturer Henniges.

In September 2015, when AVIC bought 51 percent of American precision-parts manufacturer Henniges, the other 49 percent was purchased by the Biden-and-Kerry-linked BHR.

Henniges is recognized as a world leader in anti-vibration technologies in the automotive industry and for its precise, state-of-the-art manufacturing capabilities. Anti-vibration technologies are considered “dual-use” because they can have a military application, according to both the State Department and Department of Commerce.

The technology is also on the restricted Commerce Control List used by the federal government to limit the exports of certain technologies. For that reason, the Henniges deal would require the approval of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), which reviews sensitive business transactions that may have a national security implication.

According to BHR internal documents, the Henniges deal included “arduous and often-times challenging negotiations.” The CFIUS review in 2015 included representatives from numerous government agencies including John Kerry’s State Department.

The deal was approved in 2015.

Australia To Offer Asylum To White South African Farmers Reader 03/15/2018 (Thu) 10:33:27 Id: 3b359d [Preview] No. 7290 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Australia is ready to offer special visas to white South African farmers who are currently being tortured and murdered as their corrupt government illegally seize their land.

Peter Dutton, Australia’s home affairs minister, said his department was preparing a range of methods to allow farmers flee persecution from the murderous South African regime.

Breitbart.com reports: https://archive.fo/F6jnI

As Breitbart News has reported, South Africans are increasingly worried that the government’s plans to expropriate land from white farmers without compensation could destroy the economy and the country’s fragile democracy.

South Africa’s new president Cyril Ramaphosa has vowed to pursue the same course as Zimbabwe’s former leader Robert Mugabe in expropriating farmland from white farmers without compensation.

President Ramaphosa, who replaced Jacob Zuma after years of corruption scandals finally forced the 75-year-old from office, was cheered in the South African parliament as he pledged to “accelerate our land distribution programme … to redress a grave historical injustice [and] make more land available to our people for cultivation.”

Such is the level of violence in South Africa that thousands of mainly white, Afrikaans-speaking farmers have taken to the streets to protest and plead for help.

Last year the October 30th #BlackMonday protests were organised after civil rights group AfriForum released figures claiming the murder rate for South African farmers was 156 per 100,000 — putting it well above the already high national average and making farming arguably the most dangerous occupation in the world outside a warzone.

Oy Vey! Pakistan Is Building Barbed Wire Border Fence to Keep Out Terrorists Reader 03/15/2018 (Thu) 11:06:53 Id: 4ef026 [Preview] No. 7297 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Pakistan is building a border wall with Afghanistan, after decades of unsuccessfully controlling the flow of terrorists and criminals who quietly slip back and forth across the porous 1,500-mile border between the two countries, evading capture.

The wall is not concrete, but consists of a comprehensive border system that includes two layers of 12-feet-tall barbed-wire fencing, surveillance cameras, solar lights, an intrusion detection system, and hundreds of manned forts and thousands of observation posts. It is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2019.

Last week, Breitbart News and two other news outlets were escorted by the Pakistan military into the country’s Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) to one observation post along the border near the Pakistani village of Miran Shah and just about 30 miles from Khost, Afghanistan – once considered a terrorist hotbed.

There, shiny double-layered fencing could be seen zigzagging the hilly terrain for miles between observation posts, spaced three to five kilometers apart. They are currently being manned by the Pakistan Army Frontier Corps.

Pakistan’s top military officer, Gen. Qamar Javed Bajwa, conceived of the idea when he took command in November 2016 as Pakistan’s Chief of Army Staff. Construction began last June.

According to the Pakistan military’s top spokesman, Maj. Gen. Asif Ghafoor, it has “phenomenally reduced the unchecked border crossings.”

The fence is being constructed at a critical time between U.S. and Pakistan relations.


UK Expels 23 Russian Diplomats, Freezes Russian Assets, Suspends High-Level Contacts, Russia Promises Response Reader 03/14/2018 (Wed) 17:51:05 Id: a37ba1 [Preview] No. 7274 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
The UK was braced for a showdown with Russia on Wednesday after a midnight deadline set by Prime Minister Theresa May expired without an explanation from Moscow about how a Soviet-era nerve toxin was used to strike down a former Russian double agent.

Russia, which denied any involvement in the poisoning of Sergei Skripal and his daughter with Novichok, a nerve agent developed by the Soviet military, said it was not responding to May’s ultimatum until it received samples of the nerve agent, in effect challenging Britain to show what sanctions it would impose against Russian interests.

“Moscow had nothing to do with what happened in Britain. It will not accept any totally unfounded accusations directed against it and will also not accept the language of ultimatums,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Wednesday according to Reuters. He added, however, that Russia remained open to cooperating with Britain in investigating the poisoning, blaming the British authorities for refusing to share information.

Theresa May announced that Britain will expel 23 Russian diplomats who are "undeclared intelligence officers", i.e., spies. The retaliation comes as part of a range of measures in response to the poisoning of former double agent Sergei Skripal.

Speaking to parliament, Theresa May said the Russian state was culpable in the nerve agent attack in Salisbury on former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia and is the reason for the expulsion of 23 diplomats: "All who been identified as undeclared intelligence officers. They have just one week to leave," she said.

"This will be the single biggest expulsion for over 30 years and it will reflect the fact that this is not the first time the Russian state has acted against our country" she added.

The head of the Upper House of Parliament in Russia has called the expulsion of diplomats a "provocation". He has promised Russia will react in a "fast, tough and reciprocal way".

Separately, Angela Merkel said that the EU is united on Russia but must keep talking to Russia. The German chancellor said: "We take the findings of the British government very seriously ... We will present a common European view here.

"Nonetheless, I say we can't break off all contacts now. We must still talk with the Russians despite all differences of opinion."

Other highlights from the retaliation include the suspension of some Russian assets, a quasi boycott for the world cup, where no UK officials will be present, a suspension of all high-level contact with Russia, as well as sanctions for human-rights violations.

I guess the UK is putting their citizens in serious jeopardy, AND at the mercy of Russia. Hows this for national security?


THE UK could be hit by a "gas supply emergency" and soaring bills if Putin orders Russian gas giants turn off taps in retaliation the spy scandal.

While Russia does not supply much gas directly the UK, the EU relies on the former soviet union for a third of its supply.

The terrifying prospect means Vladimir Putin could gain control over the UK's gas supply just days after Theresa May flipped her wig!

As Western Societies Collapse Under Tyranny And Debt Insolvency... China And Russia Form Uranium Partnership Reader 03/15/2018 (Thu) 10:12:46 Id: e70660 [Preview] No. 7289 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
China and Russia are teaming up for a joint uranium mining project in Western Russia.

The ARMZ Uranium holding subsidiary of Russian state owned energy giant Rosatom will be partnering with the Russia-China Investment fund (RCIF) on the $325 million project in the Zabaikalsky region.

The Priargunsky Industrial Mining and Chemical Union will reportedly own 51% of the new project, while ARMZ will hold the remaining 49%. The majority of the financing will come from the China National Nuclear Corporation with a $282 million investment, while the RCIF will put up the rest.

The mine has a total reported reserves of 40,000 tons of uranium ore, with an annual capacity of 850,000 tons expected - and will break ground by 2023.

China is the first foreign country allowed to invest in Russian uranium mining, which the Kremlin has been aggressively pursuing as part of a "uranium dominance strategy" uncovered by undercover FBI whistleblower William D. Campbell, who supplied the agency with information from the highest levels of Russia's nuclear industry.

The strategy included the purchase of Canadian-based Uranium One, which gave the Kremlin rights to 20% of American yellowcake uranium.

Campbell told lawmakers the purchase of the Uranium One assets and the securing of billions of new uranium sales contracts inside the United States during the Obama years were part of the “Russian uranium dominance strategy.” -The Hill

Campbell, despite being severely ill with cancer, testified before Congress about his undercover work - telling them of a scheme to route millions of dollars to the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) through lobbying firm APCO, which was expected to funnel a portion of its annual $3 million lobbying fee to the charity.

“The contract called for four payments of $750,000 over twelve months. APCO was expected to give assistance free of charge to the Clinton Global Initiative as part of their effort to create a favorable environment to ensure the Obama administration made affirmative decisions on everything from Uranium One to the U.S.-Russia Civilian Nuclear Cooperation agreement.“ -William Campbell

Trump May Pay For the Border Wall By Withholding Sanctuary City Funds Reader 03/15/2018 (Thu) 00:05:31 Id: 79a39d [Preview] No. 7285 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A border wall with Mexico could initially be financed by withholding federal funds from rogue 'sanctuary' cities, counties, and states - an idea that is being floated by President Trump and Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC).

"In the upcoming omnibus budget bill, Congress must fund the border wall and prohibit grants to sanctuary jurisdictions that threaten the security of our country and the people of our country," Trump said yesterday during his visit to California to inspect border wall prototypes. "We must enforce our laws and protect our people."

"California sanctuary policies put the entire nation at risk. They’re the best friend of the criminal. That’s what exactly is happening. The criminals take refuge in these sanctuary cities, and it’s very dangerous for our police and enforcement folks."

The president asserted that he may even veto the spending bill if it provides funding for sanctuary cities - regardless of whether there are also provisions for the wall.

Representative Meadows echoed the president's sentiments during an appearance on Lou Dobbs Tonight.

"On March 23, we have an omnibus coming up that will fund the entire government, and I believe that we need to put money in for the wall," Meadows said. "Perhaps one of the pay-fors would be this: let's take some of that money that is going in to these sanctuary cities and sanctuary states - who refuse to uphold the rule of law and make sure that their communities are safe - perhaps we take that money back and use it on a down payment on the wall."

Hungary's Gold Repatriation Adds To Growing Protest Against US Petrodollar Debt Insolvency Reader 03/13/2018 (Tue) 22:01:14 Id: a685d4 [Preview] No. 7260 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A country's sovereignty is becoming the driving force of so many changes in the geopolitical sphere, today. Whether it is Brexit, surprise electoral victories in central Europe or a change in trade deals, sovereignty is at the forefront of so many of these decisions.

One of the first indicators that there was a change in the water when it comes to globalisation and international cooperation was through central bank gold buying and repatriation.

For some time now many central banks have been working on building up their gold reserves and ensuring they are stored on soil it believes to be safe and trustworthy.

The most recent central bank to make this change is that of Hungary. Last week it was announced that it intends to bring 100,000 ounces of its very limited 5 tonnes gold reserves, back home from the Bank of England.

This is not an unusual move. In recent years we have seen the likes of Germany, Venezuela and the Netherlands each repatriate their gold from various locations. The pace does appear to have been picking up since the late Hugo Chavez decided to bring home 180 tonnes of gold in 2011.

Furthermore, huge central banks namely Russia and China have been adding to their gold hoards, one more publicly than the other. Both have also been encouraging the use of gold as a means of payment in international trade as a means of avoiding US dollar hegemony.

The decision to place more focus on gold reserves is a statement by central banks and their governments to reduce the counterparty risk on their reserve assets. When holding another country's currency you are vulnerable, the same applies to when a third-party holds your gold at a time when their own assets are perhaps more exposed than you're comfortable with.

Hungary's decision on gold repatriation was not something that made the mainstream news. After all, 100,000 ounces is very little when you consider than Russia increased its physical gold exposure by 20 tons in January 2018 alone.

Hungary decision is, however, a major comment on the current mindset of countries that feel they need to start working to protect their finances and borders. Hungary's political changes are widely known and have been criticised extensively by both the EU and wider Western world.

Russia, China and Turkey have each materially increased their gold reserves in recent years. Since March 2015 Russia has bought gold every single month. January's purchase took their reserves above those of China, a level which had previously been monitored as an example of the East's great interest in moving away from US dollar dominance.

China has been famously coy about its gold reserves. apart from the period from July 2015 to October 2016, China only reported its gold reserve increases at various multi-year intervals. Most recently it has been reporting zero additions to the IMF.

Russia's reasons for buying so much gold is akin to those of China, Turkey and smaller countries such as Kazakhstan. Gold gives each of these countries independence from the US dollar amid financial sanctions, trade wars and ongoing posturing by the West.

Whilst many in the West are dismissive about gold, the behaviour of central banks suggests quite a different mindset. The top four holders of gold are all from the West. Germany, the second largest has been making big strides of late to show their interest and faith in gold.

Not only did they make the decision to repatriate a late proportion of their gold back to home soil but they also recognised that transparency when it came to the country's gold reserves was paramount.

'...another milestone and a global first, an additional fourth step towards increasing transparency was taken with the publication of a list of all German gold bars, totalling around 270,000 in number. The Bundesbank has now published this roughly 2,400-page list three times since October 2015, even though it involved a series of significant challenges. There is no ‘blueprint’ for inventory lists of gold holdings and, in 2015, virtually no central bank in the world had ever released such a list.'

Gold cannot be devalued as the euro, dollar, sterling and all fiat currencies currently are. It cannot be confiscated as can deposits through bank bail-ins and it is extremely difficult to confiscate gold coins and bars if owned in allocated and segregated storage in safe vaults in the safest jurisdictions in the world.

Gold is a borderless money that acts as the ultimate reserve and safe haven in a diversified portfolio. This is something central banks are strongly aware of. The difference between the East and West banks is that the East is making big strides to bring gold to the forefront of their international affairs.

Gold has a given, assigned and attached hypothetical value. Otherwise it's just a pretty paperweight. Still a better basis for (and to back) currency than the fiat USD.

Gold and silver always hold value, but the value can manipulated similar to fiat as long as it remains on corporate/banking markets (such as the stock market). But gold and silver also can be melted down and mixed with other metals to scam people so you must be careful who you buy it from, make sure you buy from trusted sources (and do tests: easy to test silver because silver makes a distinct ringing sound when smacking it together).

However - unlike fiat currency - gold and silver CAN NOT be devalued to 0. Never in human history has gold or silver been worthless. Never. So these really are good safe havens during hyperinflation or economic turmoil. And no matter what people say, governments are never able to prevent citizens from trading gold/silver when economies collapse, because people are so poor and desperate they do it anyway regardless of the law. Look at any collapsed country you will see citizens trading tiny gold nuggets for bread and water. So it is a safe haven and unlike fiat currencies these precious metals will always store value. Your pretty stupid not to take the opportunity if you have some extra cash to purchase physical holdings.

For global stability the world seriously should learn from the mistakes of the past (failed keynesian economics) and start backing their currencies with silver and gold reserves. This would solve so many problems as well keep governments and central banks from hyperinflating/destroying their currencies. All currencies that have been devalued to nothing in the past happen to be oil-backed and fiat (non-backed) currencies. I think the Chinese tried centuries ago to back a couple currencies with rice but that didn't end very well either.

Good! Natural News Ready To Sue Google If Youtube Channel Not Restored Reader 03/14/2018 (Wed) 19:43:00 Id: 75ace2 [Preview] No. 7278 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

In the most egregious demonstration yet of outright tyranny and oppression of free speech, YouTube terminated the entire Health Ranger channel (“TheHealthRanger”) without explanation over a week ago. Since then, the internet has expressed increasing outrage toward YouTube for blatant censorship of a channel with over 350,000 subscribers, 1700+ videos and over a decade of video content covering natural medicine, home gardening, laboratory science and liberty podcasts.

The blatant censorship purge being carried out by tech gatekeepers like Google, YouTube and Facebook can only be called “techno-fascism,” and it’s rooted in radical left-wing ideology that has disturbingly morphed into an intolerance cult of totalitarian nut jobs. These people believe that censoring all political opponents is a “victory” for their twisted ideology, and they have now weaponized their power to censor into a campaign of oppression that’s so dangerous, even the creator of the World Wide Web is now calling for the tech giants to be urgently regulated to protect free speech.

“What was once a rich selection of blogs and websites has been compressed under the powerful weight of a few dominant platforms,” warned Tim Berners-Lee in this Web Foundation post. “This concentration of power creates a new set of gatekeepers, allowing a handful of platforms to control which ideas and opinions are seen and shared.”

“What’s more, the fact that power is concentrated among so few companies has made it possible to weaponise the web at scale,” Lee added. He’s referring to the tendency for concentrated power to be exploited and abused by those who wield it. Today, Google, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter pose a very real danger to democracy and freedom, and they are selectively targeting independent media voices for termination or suppression.

Watch Ben Swann explain it, if they don’t ban his video by the time you read this: https://hooktube.com/watch?v=4503ZDmzfoM (now mirrored @ /saved/)

Today, my legal team has issued a demand letter to YouTube, seeking justification for why the channel was banned and demanding the channel be restored. When YouTube terminates your channel and memory holes all your videos, they provide no evidence whatsoever to justify their decision. They don’t name a video that was in violation, and they have no process for appealing the decision or defending yourself against false accusations.

YouTube’s censorship process is the very definition of techno-tyranny: You’re deemed guilty merely by being accused, even without a shred of actual evidence against you. That’s why we’ve demanded that YouTube present evidence of a violation of their community guidelines. Because, truth be told, no such evidence exists. YouTube faked the “violations” accusation in order to terminate my video channel for political reasons alone.

This is exactly what Google did over a year ago to blacklist the NaturalNews.com domain from the Google index for six days. They fabricated a completely fake technical reason, then deleted the entire Natural News website. Six days later, the site was turned back on, without explanation. Never in this entire process did Google provide a single shred of evidence of any technical violation having occurred. In fact, thousands of webmasters reviewed the Natural News website during that dust-up, and there wasn’t a single webmaster who could locate any technical violation that would have justified Google’s blatant censorship of the NaturalNews.com domain.

Hi, thanks for the news, but I have a polite suggestion. May you please stop using the word fascism, without regard to it's original meaning, to denote totalitarianism? Thanks in advance.

Its the report that is saying that not me. And don't take it so personally, lots of people don't see much of a difference between communism, fascism, socialism, monarchism, totalitarianism etc. likely because most of the previous systems have led to tyranny (in one form or another) and have failed. Thats why most *isms tend to have a bad rep. If keynesianism is considered capitalism then likely capitalism will too fall under all those other categories after the next major deadly crisis occurs.
